Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Three stories about the friendship between a vole and a groundhog. Little Rose, a worrier, sits under her umbrella waiting for rain while her friend Riley cavorts in the sunshine. Next she is concerned about what would happen if everybody celebrated un-birthdays. Finally, Riley makes his pal "worry" dolls so that she can sleep. Throughout the book, there is a feeling of how comforting it is to have a friend. Soft pastel illustrations add to the warmth of the text while repetition eases the decoding. A sweet, thoughtful offering with two memorable characters.–Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX


"Cutler's narrative is concise and smooth. Yezerski's line-and-watercolor art displays a delicate clouding of earthy colors that gives the images a gentle, pensive air. The warmth of the relationship makes rereading worthwhile." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Yezerski's soft pastels have just enough charm, energy and cuteness to match the gentle stories." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A sweet, thoughtful offering with two memorable characters." -- School Library Journal
"The whole 'Rose and Riley' package, with Yezerski's gentle watercolors and Cutler's fresh writing style, is reminiscent of 'Frog and Toad are Friends' by Arnold Lobel. Delightful fare for the emergent reader looking for something that's not just by the book." -- The San Francisco Chronicle

Three nice stories about two friends--I'll look for more by this author. It's hard to find books about creatures being kind and helpful.
